Yale - Ukraine Initiative

International Conference at Yale University
New Haven, Connecticut
April 8 - 9, 2000
Program Registration Brochure
The Yale-Ukraine Initiative and the Yale Center for International and Area Studies will host a two-day conference which will examine Ukrainian politics in the past century.

The recent presidential elections in Ukraine have once again made evident the challenges that confront Ukrainian society: nation-building and creation of stable democratic institutions, economic reform, integration of regional and national interests, and relations with the ex-Soviet world and beyond.  These complex issues will form the basis for discussion at this year's conference as its contributors explore the nature and distinctiveness of Ukrainian politics today; the role of language and conflicting identities in the political process; and the enduring legacy of earlier historical and cultural developments.

The conference, Saturday April 8, and Sunday April 9, will be held from 9:00 am -- 6:00 pm in the Auditorium of Henry R. Luce Hall, 34 Hillhouse Avenue, New Haven, Connecticut.

Conference papers will be made available to all participants during the conference and will be published afterward in the Working Papers Series of the Yale Center for International and Area Studies.

Support for the conference is provided by Yale's Edward J. and Dorothy Clarke Kempf Fund, with special assistance from the Yale Center for International and Area Studies, Pierson College, and European Studies Council.

The Yale-Ukraine Initiative, established in 1994 by a grant from the Chopivsky Family Foundation, seeks to enhance the study of Ukraine at Yale University through academic and research fellowships, language and culture courses, lecture series, student and faculty exchanges with Ukraine, and library support.
